Hybrid research involving concepts from both standard music curricula and audio engineering may employ hierarchies of values explained by different terms of reference. Conversely, similar terms of reference as employed by different communities may presuppose divergent contexts and uses. We emphasize tools and terminology that can support collaborators across a spectrum of specialties.

Types of intervals depend on the distance between the two pitches.
Within the realms of both sound and notation, several units of measurement are recognized.
